Gearhead Efficiencies

When Calculating Output torque of an AC or BLDC motor, the equation is as follows: 1.png 2.png The gearhead output torque increases proportionally as the gear ratio increases. However, the load torque is saturated at a certain gear ratio because of the gear materials and other conditions. This torqu...
